Fact: I’m highkey always looking for a reason to switch up my nail art. Are you getting the picture? When my nails are finished, I feel as though I’ve got everything under control. For me holidays are exactly what holiday are. AlwaysIt’s a good time to try new trends and different nail colors. And with Saint Patrick’s Day on the horizon, I’m on the hunt for the cutest nail ideas that will look dope on my feed. Unlike Christmas or New Year’s, though, Saint Patrick’s Day nails can honestly be a lil more challenging than you’d expect—like, you wanna be fun and festive (and break out the green polish you haven’t used all year), but you don’t want to look like you have the literal Lucky Charms leprechaun on your hand. You can still make tiny touches of gold with rainbows, clovers and other small details. Yes pls.
Because I know I’m not the only one prepping for March 17, I combed through Insta to find the coolest Saint Patrick’s Day nail ideas for you. Trust—none of these are lame or cheesy. Some are subtle and only you, your friends, will know the difference. (Although they’ll totally match the green beer you’re drinking—perfect for Insta, amirite?) From French manicures to glitter polish, here are 30 ideas you’re going to absolutely love but won’t be bored with on March 18.
